I can't say I watch tennis much, but it is actually one sport I do like to watch. I like women's tennis as much as men's, and it's not just because of the skimpy outfits, although I'm sure it doesn't hurt.

Homeless guy had permission to sleep in a synagogue's center. He was telling the officer's why he was there but I guess they didn't believe him. He should not have put his hands up like he did (watch the video), but he certainly didn't deserve what happened to him.

George McGovern died. A republican for people like me to vote for!

Read this amazing account from WWII when the bomb in his plane wouldn't drop out.

One day I turned the channel and found hockey. asked myself, "WHy do both these teams suck so bad?" Boring game, slow, no hits, etc. Then I discovered it was women's college hockey, and because we're still a sexist society, women aren't allowed to check or board, even though boys do (even in high school).

Ha! Why did I say Republican? I even know the buttons "Don't blame me, I vote McGovern" re: the failed Nixon presidency!

However, he wasn't actually very liberal. He was very much a moderate.

Did anyone watch A Night of Too Many Stars last night? You should catch a repeat if for no other reason than to watch the segment with the autistic girl who sang "Firework" with Katy Perry. Or you can go to YouTube and search Katy Perry Jodi DiPiazza.

Ha!
Read this quote from a Redskins Player....


The Redskins’ Barry Cofield knows Manning’s capabilities well. The defensive tackle was a Giant from 2006-10, but Cofield said he’s even more impressed by Manning now.“Eli is like Joe Montana right now,” Cofield said.“When I was here, he was good, showing flashes, he’s exceptional right now. He’s got nerves of steel. To beat this team you are gonna have to bury him, then you have to put the dirt on top of him and then put the cement on top of him and then watch it dry. Anything short of that they are still in the game.”

Maybe they lost a bet with their friends and they either go watch an entire WNBA game live or run into a police station naked.

I agree with everyone, though, that it's not a sport I'd watch. But then again, I rarely watch men's basketball either. I like going to the games more than watching on TV.
Interesting. I don't watch tennis, but I used to when I was in HS. And I would watch men's AND women's. I never thought it was slower. You saying Stefi Graf, Monica Seles, Martina Navratalova et all were slower and not as good as today's women?

The MN LYnx are very good, but the Timberwolves are beyond horrible (this year may change that). I wonder if it's just a matter of wanting to see a winning team when the available men's team is horrid.

Urgh...getting a cold. Shock of shocks, the people I was crammed in to meeting rooms with all last week were sick.

Only 2 lbs lost my first week back on low carb. Lame. Maybe if I'm sick, I'll lose faster ;-)

Skill and pace are two different things. Stefi and Martina were excellent players, but the pace of the game when they played was not what it is now. Racquet technology alone has increased the speed of the game significantly, and that is evidenced in part by the decline in players coming to the net. Now the game is primarily ground strokes.

I get annoyed by the constant GRUNTING. The women do it more than the men.
